What’s up with the feeling of Sunday evening? (& The philosophy of: Henry David Thoreau)

Thoreau had an idea… and that was that every year, in each of all its seasons, mimics the seasons of our own lives…

Autumn is the dawn or our lives, winter is the time we have to battle and stick it out, spring is the time for opportunity and excitement about the prosperous time that lies ahead, and summer, well, it’s the time to thrive in all areas of your life… before autumn comes, and time to wind it all down…

But it’s not only the seasons that are a microcosm of your life as a whole…
Every day is one.

From the dawn of the day, to the pregnant possibilities of the early morning, to the descending sun of the afternoon, to the setting sun of dusk… it is all a metaphor of our lives (ever wondered why the sunset is best spent with someone we care about? Because it’s a metaphor of the twilight of our lives, from life into death…)
